AMA Recognizes Memorial Day

2012-ama-recognizes-memorial-dayAMA Salutes Americans Who Gave Their Lives in Our Nation’s Service

The American Motorcyclist Association, the largest member-based motorcycling organzation in the world, expresses its deepest gratitude to the families and friends of loved ones who have given the ultimate sacrifice in service to the United States of America, and honors their memories on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28.

Rob Dingman (President & CEO, AMA) says: “Motorcyclists everywhere salute the sacrifices of America’s armed forces and her citizens who have perished in service to our country.

“We know that the very freedoms we enjoy, including the freedom to ride and travel freely throughout this great nation, are defended daily by Americans who have devoted their lives to protect our principles, and many have made the ultimate sacrifice in that defense.”

The Memorial Day Weekend is one of the busiest travel periods of the year, and motorcyclists will be on the road as well, participating in AMA-sanctioned events, memorial parades, freedom rides, and traveling to visit family and friends.

Rob Dingman says: “We ask motorists everywhere to be aware of motorcycles when they are driving this weekend. Motorcycling is a mainstream activity for millions of Americans. If you don’t ride, chances are very good that a friend, family member or co-worker you know will be riding this weekend, and we urge extra caution because so many people will be on our highways during this holiday period.”
